IU-Notify is Indiana University’s mass communication tool for alerting students and IU employees to immediate dangers, such as severe weather or hostile intruders, and ongoing threats that could cause harm, such as unsolved robberies and sexual assaults. The messages can be sent to cell phones (voice and text) and land-line phones, email, digital signs and some desktop computers. This alert system is separate from the RAVE alerts. Students select which IU campus they need to receive alerts from.
